this hour. hilliard is just outside of columbus. now, frankly county went 59% for obama in 2008. but the gop is putting up a fight here. now, the president has three stops in ohio today. he'll stay here tomorrow in the morning. mitt romney has two, plus the stop in wisconsin. and just by looking at the candidate's itineraries, it tells you b a lot about just how important they think this state is. it's going to be an all-out fight for ohio's 18 electoral votes. it's worth repeating. no republican has ever won the presidency without ohio. just this morning, there was a better than expected jobs report. while the unemployment rate picked up to 7.9%, 171,000 jobs were created. that beats estimates by a strong margin. now, here in ohio, the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. it is 7%. late yesterday, i visited both the romney and obama campaign headquarters in columbus. when i asked people why they're giving their time and what people they're talking to are telling them, the economy is still the central issue in this campaign. >> i think the economy is not doing well and i thi
, and the technology is terrific. until it isn't. will air force one touched down in columbus, ohio, for the final campaign stop in ohio. the boss will warm up the crowd after hitching a ride with the president, from wisconsin. jay-z will hit the stage in the hour and the president will make the final pitch to voters in a state that has many, many time i have said could decide the vote. the president suggested governor romney would not bring anything new to the table. >> we know what change looked like, madison. mitt romney ain't it. giving more power back to the big of the banks is not change. another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy is not change. refusing to answer questions about your policy until after the election, that is not change. that is the oldest game in the book. >>shepard: he will wrap up his campaigning in iowa where his win in the 2008 caucuses put him on the path to the white house. coverage continues now with wendell live in columbus, ohio, we are waiting for the rally to begin. what more can we say? it is crucial. >>reporter: we can expect bruce springsteen to walk o
he could to get as many people out to the polls as possible. as he said in columbus he said not only was he going to do that work but he implored his supporters to do it as well. >> tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. perhaps some of your friends and family have not made up their minds who they are going to vote for. when you talk to hem ask to go beyond the speeches and the ads and the attacks and look at the record. talk is cheap but a record is real and it's earned. bill: as promised, this what is we were waiting for ... martha: who are those two people? i don't recognize them from the back. bill: this is governor romney and his wife ann cast their ballot for ... you can take one guess what's happening there. this is in their hometown of massachusetts. it's a hotbed of democratic votes. i have to cut into those votes to have a chance in ohio. later he goes to pittsburgh. if you look at the mate was all red. a sea of red with one exception, that was allegheny county where president obama won there. governor romney will be there pat 3:00. martha: a lot of questions about pennsylvania.
of enthusiasm. i was with the president near columbus, ohio, on thursday. he has tremendous bounce in his step, tremendous confidence of people, all kinds of people were walking up. saw. there were old people, young people, black people, latinos. every time of person that's an american who is coming to that rally. people were bringing their children, taking them out of school because it was such an event. it was very, very moving to see the type of event that attended that event and i think that's the kind of deep-seeded enthusiasm that is going to carry the day in ohio. are the voters, are the residents when you visit them -- do they bring up the automobile fiasco that romney has gotten himself into? frin, this is ohio senator rob portman who was asked about the lies today and here's his response. >> the fact is, we now make jeeps in toledo, ohio, that we're proud to send to china, to asia. if they are going to start production facilities overseas, we're going to lose it here. that's all the ad said. >> what are the folks on the ground -- what are the residents of ohio saying to you? what do
out. in his last campaign event, the rally in ohio yesterday in columbus he appealed to people to get out to the polls themselves and find five other people to get out to the polls. he drew sharp contrast between his vision of america's future and the president's. >> he says it has to be this way. i say it can't stay this way. he's covering excuses. i'm offering a plan. [cheers and applause] >> i can't wait to get started. he's hoping we'll settle. but americans don't settle. we build, we aspire, we grow, we can do better, a better job, a better life for our kids, a bigger, better country. [cheers and applause] >> one group to pay attention to in ohio evangelical voters. 375,000 of them stayed home. there has been a massive operation to get gels ou evangelicals out to the polls. what everything-heard the enthusiasm among that group is up. compare 2012 to 2006 a romney adviser told me in 2006 in the off year elections in the congressional elections that they were out looking for voters and they said, yeah we're find -lg them, there just aren't that many of them. contrast that with this
ument professional and i trust her judgment. we're not talking about some politician in columbus who wants to suppress the vote, we're talking about a professional cares that every vote is county zbld you're giving us new information here tonight. there are 17 locations. the board has been unable to reach by telephone. the with 14 of those in cleveland. you're saying that that has been remedied has taken place on that? >> it has been remediesed. i talked to director jane plat ten tonight. in cleveland proper itself every single polling location has its electricity restored. we will be ready, ed, on election day. >> the $64 question. is president obama going to win the state of ohio? >> he is going to win, ed. we're going to deliver. they talked about the use of the word "revenge." . but all of us get caught up from time to time. but the president has heart-soul agreement and that is what is going to deliver this election to him. ohioans whether they're working class white males, african-american or hispanic and asian folks we know that he has heart-soul agreement and he has been stan
are they? >> tomorrow there's going to be a battle of the bands, literally, in columbus, ohio, where the obama campaign and the romney campaign will almost run into each other. the president will have bruce spring teen with him. i'll leave it up to the pollsters to figure out who comes ahead this in that one. it is the cross roads of america, the cross roads of the campaign. the president will basically end his campaign in des moines, iowa, in the state that really launched his presidential career. >> is he in good shape in iowa? >> i think the president is in good shape in iowa. in the last 48 hours you are where you go. plopz was in iowa. he's not going back. he's not going back to nevada. he's not going back to iowa. and he's not going to pennsylvania again. which is significant because the obama campaign in the end didn't take the bait on pennsylvania. they are sending bill clinton there, but they are not sending the president there. >> what hasn't bill clinton done for barack obama? >> he was obama's great explainer. he was the obama whisperer in charlotte. and he's been a good
, then back to ohio, this huge battleground state where the columbus dispatch puts the president just two points ahead. so, as you talk about the fact that the obama campaign has done a good job of trying to disqualify mitt romney as a candidate, the american people see him as a viable choice. >> this is a very close election. you can compare it to 2004, no doubt about it, but there is a real force that has been out there for four years against the president. there's been a narrative in the tea party real m, that the economy isn't good. there's a lot of information voters out there, a lot of head shakers that aren't convinced. the dislike of the president is the best thing he's got going for him. the president did win 66 of the vote four years ago. wisconsin has become -- the gop than they expected. >> ryan has failed to deliver positive polling in wisconsin since he's been on the ticket. mitt romney, his campaign has not had any momentum in wisconsin to the point where they had ab ahead in any of the polls. said they were going to vote r for president obama, i don't see the romney campai
hopefully tonight. ohio, there was a "columbus dispatch" poll that democrats like to cite which shows that romney overperforming mccain by 22 points. to mccain's 11 points. the county to watch there is hamilton county. the very populated, swing county. this is very tight. early voting showed obama rehead. the democratic advantage is up. that and a absentee ballot wiped it out. >> dana: romney internal showed them up plus two in ohio. michael leavitt, health and human services secretary for bush, he started on the reagan campaign and he was so excite excited. he said you would go to ohio. he said i don't want to go to ohio. nothing happens there. he said you can't win as republican if you don't win ohio. i'm sure he is reminding them of that every day. >> eric: any surprise if romney wins ohio today? and president obama chose not to -- >> dana: biden went last minute today. >> bob: i don't know why he chose cuyahoga county. i think what they're probably trying to do is minimize votes in cuyahoga county. as andrea pointed out to me, suburban counties around it, have been republican, and
were two counties, cuyahoga which includes cleveland and also franklin county which includes columbus, ohio, where i am where he racked up large margins and also racking up large margins but thele vote count was down by a total of 50,000 or more. if you figure that the president would get about 60% of those votes, that say lot of votes he is not getting that he otherwise had gotten four years ago, so right now we're looking at a very tight race basically tied with about 30% of the vote still to go. i should note that hamilton county, that key county in the southwestern part of the state, right now the president is doing very well there with early results in, but there's still a lot more votes to be counted down there in hamilton county, george. >> so bring us up to date now, george, on the electoral votes then take us to florida. let's keep -- >> we see the electoral votes in so far, 244 for president obama, 203 for governor romney. that means that president obama needs 26 more electoral votes to get to 270. obviously 67 for governor romney. florida key to all that, that's got 29 elec
healthcare to learn about medicare plans that may be right for you. call now. ♪ >>> downtown columbus now. we're back in ohio, and the biggest prize in next week's election, well, prepare yourselves, everyone. look at the results of five -- this is five national polls. all of these poll takers talked to voters just within the last week. look at this. look at how close they are. note that many numbers are similar, are within a point, 48 here, 47 there, this is just more proof that the presidential race looks like it is going to be headed to a photo finish. so when the race is this tight, election day this close, i mean, what do the campaigns concentrate on? it really all boils down to, i'm sure gloria borger, our chief political analyst, it is a numbers game, gloria. >> yeah. >> she's in washington. yeah, so it boils down to numbers, right? >> it does. it boils -- it boils down to turnout. when you look at those national poll matchups, you know this, don, that's not really what we're looking at. because national polls include states that are very red and include states that are very blue. you're looki
in columbus, ohio. shannon bream at the republican watch party if des moines, iowa. good evening, shannon. >> reporter: hello, bret. well, republicans here in iowa are hoping that romney will pull off a somewhat unexpected win. there is something down ticket that could help him. in 2009, the state supreme court here legalized same-sex marriage. that motivated and mobilized conservatives and evangelical christians. they had three of the justices that signed on to the opinion removed. a fourth justice on the ballot. that is not all. control of the state senate is control by democrats. conservatives hope to win it back to give them control of the both state houses and enabling them to pass legislation to been a the same-sex marriage. if the evident to get out the vote on the same-sex marriage issue is successful, it could help romney. secretary of state here says there have been very few complaints about the voting irregularities. the biggest complaint is vote whose didn't get the "i voted" sticker. take it now to steve brown in ohio. >> reporter: hey, shannon. yes, in ohio, the polls close
. the cliche about ohio is there are fiveeparatehio there's columbus, more catholics up in the north. but it stretches south. >> woodruff: do you see anything else in those numbers? are are we about to make another call? wyoming, okay. we're calling wyoming for mitt romney. the home of dick cheney. i think this is the state that president obama had the worst showing in, in 2008 if i'm not mistaken. so this is not also not a surprise. >> ifill: also dick cheney's state. >> woodruff: we're going to look it up right now. any of those results say anything? >> population density does matter. you go to a dense area you're probably in a democratic area. you go to a sparse area -- and wyoming certainly qualifies -- you're probably in a republican area. >> woodruff: it's beautiful out there. >> it certainly is. their electoral vote should count for more. >> ifill: so is new york. we were talking earlier and we were talking to margaret about exactly why mitt romney would spend his day today in a dense area. i saw he gave an interview to a radio station where he sicay said i don't want to sit a
'm going to be watching most is the area around columbus, franklin county. and it's not just for a selfish purpose. i really think that is going to be a county that could swing either way. we've seen that in congressional races and we've seen that in presidential races in the past. a lot of folks have looked at southwest ohio where cincinnati is. it's expected president obama will take cincinnati. i think franklin county could be where a lot of action is tonight. i can oaga county, where cleveland is, that's going to be heavily democratic. in fact, all of northern ohio is going to be heavily democratic. western ohio, alongside i-75, which leads up to michigan, that's going to be strong republican turnout. and of course we have the rural areas. those are going to be interesting to watch as well. >> one of the things we heard so much in the campaigns is it's a story about unemployment, and especially in ohio. i've pulled up the unemployment numbers, according to the bureau of labor statistics as of september 2012, and on the lower half of the state you see pretty bad unemployment, 9.4% in mo
in the rural areas and places just say north of columbus. just north of cincinnati. those are firewall counties for republicans. and if they do well there, that could really give them a slight advantage. democrats on the other hand are working the urban areas and they're also going after small places like mansfield, ohio. lima. little places where there are democratic pockets surrounded by republican areas. that's something they learned from job kerry in iowa in 2004 when he got so focused on a handful of counties, he left a bunch of voters out there in the state. >> anything you're focused on, dave, that would suggest to you that the republicans are right when they say we've got the enthusiasm behind us so we're going to sneak in a win on tuesday? >> these crowds are bigger than the ones john mccain and sarah palin had. look at the rally, the kickoff of romney's closer. the first people i talked to were volunteers from kentucky and tennessee, which is great, they're working and getting the vote out. signs don't vote. you see a lot of romney signs and they're impressive, you see a lot of effort
her judgment. we're not talking about some politician in columbus who wants to suppress the vote, we're talking about a professional who cares that every vote is counted. we're going to do it, ed. >> senator turner, you're giving us new information here tonight. there are 17 locations the board has been unable to reach by telephone with 14 of those in cleveland. you're saying that that has been remedied? >> it has been remedied. i talked to director jane platen tonight. in cleveland proper itself every single polling location has its electricity restored. we will be ready, ed, on election day. >> the $64 question. is president obama going to win the state of ohio? >> he is going to win, ed. we're going to deliver. you know, they talked about the use of the word revenge," but, you know, all of us get caught up from time to time. but the president has heart-soul agreement and that is what is going to deliver this election to him. ohioans, whether they're working class white males, working class african-american or hispanic and asian folks, we know that he has heart-soul agreement and h
in the 2000 election? cnbc's scott cohn joins us from columbus, ohio. good morning to you, scott. >> reporter: good morning, andrew. it could be if it's a close race that ohio 2012 makes florida looks like child's play. say what you will at enthusiasm, here at ohio state university the youth vote is turning out, lined up half an hour before the polls opened at 6:30 eastern time this morning. the line is moving but moving slowly but they are indeed here. how important is ohio? president obama joined by bruce springsteen and jay-z appeared before about 15,000 supporters at a rally in town town columbus yesterday afternoon. governor romney appeared at an airport rally, olympic figure skater scott hamilton and golfer jack nicklaus providing the star power. along with the armies of campaign worker answer supporters are armies of lawyers already legal battles out if here in ohio, the latest involves this, this is the paperwork that accompanies a provisional ballot. dl is a court case pending. if there is a close race, 50,000 votes on either side it could all come down to this. >> provisional ballot
ron claiborne wants to weigh in. he's in ohio, he's in columbus right now and you are there at the secretary of state's office and we know every single vote, every polling place is being watched tonight, ron. >> reporter: they're being watched very closely and, diane, 1.6, 1.8 million voters actually voted early either by absentee ballots or in person going to early voting stations. those will be the first votes counted. we start to get those in about 20, maybe 30 minutes from now. we will get an indication, for example, if there is a high turnout in those early voting areas around cleveland. that would be very favorable to president obama. and meanwhile, as you were saying, the auto bailout has figured prominently in this state something like one in eight jobs are involved in the auto industry and the obama campaign was able to really bludgeon mitt romney with that issue in recent days in a way magnifying romney's attack line saying that those jeeps would be built in china. the response was so overwhelming by the obama administration and auto executives it may hav
and stretched his energy policy. they're democrats, but he thinks he can pick up the votes. columbus, cleveland, those are high numbers for the president. it's too close to call there my campaign sources say. >> jan, thank you. the president has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be reelected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign and nancy cortis is covering the obama campaign. you spent time in ohio as well. >> reporter: i sure did, scott. it was a perfect example. we were out five days from election day. the president spends the entire day barn storming ohio, heads to the white house to sleep and comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just how much he favored this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country this campaign season. 26 of them, more than a quarter, were in one state, ohio and he wasn't just in the big cities. he went to suburbs and small towns. the main reason the obama campaign felt their chances were better in ohio than say virginia or florida
